"This is an outstanding collection of essays on the most important, fundamental concepts of law and legal theory...Recommended for any undergraduate student in this area or for any thinking person who wants to know more about the law and its reasons for being." (M/C Reviews, February 2011)
Dennis Patterson is Professor of Philosophy of Law and Legal Theory at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and is Board of Governors Professor of Law at Rutgers University School of Law (Camden, NJ). He is also Professor of Jurisprudence and International Trade at Swansea University, Wales. He has written widely in the philosophy of law and international trade law. His books include Law and Truth (1996), Mind, Meaning and Law (2008), and most recently The New Global Trading Order (2008) with Ari Afilalo.
The second edition of this outstanding Companion provides an unparalleled survey of philosophy of law and legal theory for students and specialists alike. Written by an international assembly of leading scholars, the articles have been revised throughout, and the addition of ten entirely new essays ensures that the volume continues to offer the most up-to-date coverage of current thinking in legal philosophy. Articles new to this edition cover the areas of risk, regulatory theory, methodology, overcriminalization, intention, coercion, unjust enrichment, the rule of law, law and society, and Kantian legal philosophy. Together, the essays provide an in-depth introduction to philosophical and legal theory, and a critical overview of the basic theoretical concepts, theories, topics, philosophical issues, and themes that now feature in the law school and undergraduate legal studies curricula.
"Anyone interested in what philosophical issues underlie the major domains of law, what aims and assumptions animate the major movements of contemporary legal theory, what issues of legal controversy are today uppermost and why, would do well to adopt this work as a companion, indeed a guide. Its 48 crisp, focused, and argumentative chapters make for lively companionship, and their authoritative outlines of and contributions to major fields make them reliable guides. It is a rich and accomplished collection." —Martin Krygier, The University of New South Wales
